Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Mount Fuji Seen on the Left of the Road at Yoshiwara

Series; Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido

Hiroshige’s Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido - In 1832, Hiroshige first traveled from his home in Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto along the Tokaido road. The journey was an eye opening and life changing experience for him. As an urban man of Edo he had experienced life mainly in the capital. He immediately returned to Edo after the trip and began his masterwork woodblock series from the sketches he had made on his journey. Hiroshige's Tokaido prints are an opportunity to be transported back in time to see this world as Hiroshige did in the shadow of the Tokugawa Shogunate.

Mount Fuji Seen on the Left of the Road at Yoshiwara - Terrific image of the famous stretch of the Tokaido identified as "Fuji on the left," as it was the only portion along the road where Mt. Fuji was not seen to the right. A groom leads a horse laden with three travelers beneath the pine trees arching over the narrow path as it winds through the fields. At upper left, the brown peak of Mt. Fuji rises above hazy yellow clouds below. A striking composition, nicely detailed with fine bokashi shading.
